Change is inevitable. Just when we get familiar and comfortable with a procedure or practice, it will change! Habits are hard to change. With the dawn of the new semester, changes will be expected of everyone. Changes in performance expectations in a class, new Blackboard features, and new study habits are examples of this inevitable change. Adjusting to the newness can create a feeling of discomfort for a short while.
Technology is an example of how changes will force us to learn new ways of doing most everything! Take a look at the video “Help Desk for Reading Books.” Then, see how similar we are to the monks depicted here.
How will you cope with the changes of the semester?
